Vietnam is becoming one of the top travel destinations for Indians, and to bank in on the same, these direct flights have been launched, with the aim to bring in more tourists to the country. As of now, three weekly flights to Hanoi and four to Ho Chi Minh City will ply on a weekly basis. What’s more, according to reports, four round-trip flights per week from Mumbai to Phu Quoc and Delhi to Phu Quoc are set to launch by September.
To celebrate the new flight launches, the airline company is offering 19,999 super-saver tickets starting from INR 0 on all flights between the two countries, for trips booked for dates between July 1 till December 21, 2022. These promotional tickets can be booked from June 7, 10:30 am till June 9, 10:30 pm.
Zee News quoted Vietjet’s Vice President Do Xuan Quang as saying, “We believe that the two services from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to Mumbai, as well as the coming Phu Quoc – Mumbai route, will strengthen the ongoing relationship of Vietnam’s two biggest cities with Mumbai.”
Vietnam has been a much-loved travel destination for Indians, who can visit the country visa-free (availing a visa on arrival) and explore the rich cultural heritage the nation has to offer. This, paired with some delectable Vietnamese cuisine, clear waters and some stunning sights, makes for the ideal summer trip.
